The vineyards cover 460 hectares of vineyards on limestone soils on the right side of the Garonne. The appellation covers sweet white wines made from noble sweet grapes of the Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle varieties. The red wines are produced as simple appellation Bordeaux. Well-known wineries are for example Château Bel Air, Château du Mont, Château La Grave, Château La Rame and Château Lousteau-Vieil. To the north of Sainte-Croix-du-Mont is the appellation Loupiac with very similar wines.
